On a picturesque Georgian styled street, nestling behind a 19th-century facade, is this beautifully-preserved building surrounded by similarly aged historic windmills, shops and gunpowder mills.

Located near the iconic Cataract Gorge, the Kings Bridge Bar & Restaurant offers patrons a welcoming atmosphere and a long standing reputation for imaginative, freshly cooked cuisine. Stylishly refurbished, a warm, friendly welcome awaits.


Originally built as a Mill House in 1825 on the banks of the Isis River, Kings Bridge Bar & Restaurant has enjoyed a colourful history as one of the oldest buildings in Launceston. Its Georgian cobblestone walls and rustic interior complete with open fireplace takes you back to a bygone era. The building stands as testimony to its founder Andrew Gatenby, an early pioneer of Van Diemen’s Land. Arriving with his young family in 1823, they settled on a parcel of land on the Isis River, then known as Penny Royal Creek.


At Kings Bridge Bar & Restaurant we have captured the perfect combination of historic ambience and modern day pub fare. Enjoy delicious cocktails, Guinness on tap, plenty of craft beers and ciders as well as the favourties to keep everyone happy!

We love to see locals and tourists alike as well as functions and parties. Pay us a visit soon and meet our friendly team!
